This New Year Eve spectacular up in Mendocino begins with 70% of
Soulshine cut. The sound levels on d1 increase and stabalize after
about 15 secs.
It was a special night in Northern California. The highlights were:
Positve, the Yes I Will in which Radio does a classic intro, all the
solos in Stay Human, the Bomb The World dub, Leon Weir, Family Affair,
and the Jam to begin d3. Frankly, all of disc 3 is a gem, incredible.
Kevin and Leon really light it up and make it epic. Longest Sometimes
ever played. That night, Michael never seemed to lose a breath and
sang at his best. The band got onboard with the idea real soon, and
by the third song, Positive, it all gelled. Here you'll find them all
at their very best.
